Lost and Found Pets

Did you find a pet?

If you’ve found a pet, please view the list below of jurisdictions contracted with our shelter to see if you should bring the pet to our shelter or another location. If you’ve found a pet and have decided to house the pet until you find its owner, by law you should contact EAS by coming into the shelter, calling 425-257-6000 to provide us with a description of the animal or by submitting a Found Report online.

Did you lose a pet?

The Everett Animal Shelter holds stray animals for 72 hours to allow owners a chance to find their lost pets. If the animal is not claimed in that time period, it then becomes the property of the Everett Animal Shelter. Once the stray hold is up the animals rarely go out for adoption right away. There are many reasons why the animal may not be available immediately. They may need spay/neuter surgery or some other medical attention. They may need a behavior assessment and a plan to address any behavior issues.

Animals who are available for adoption are on the "adoptable pets" page of our website.

Owners who do come into the shelter to claim lost pets must provide proof of ownership at the time of redemption. There are fees associated with reclaiming a pet.

It is your responsibility to be diligent in finding your pet.

We highly recommend you:

  • Check this website every day
  • Come into the shelter and look through our “Strays in the Shelter" binder and "Found Pets not at the shelter" binder. Pictures, descriptions and names may not match your pet exactly; stray pets at the shelter with no identification are assigned temporary names upon intake. Information about animals cared for by their finder is not posted on our website and is only available by visiting the shelter to review found reports. We recommend you visit the shelter in person on a regular basis to review these found reports. 
  • Put up signs in your neighborhood and check with local veterinarians, other shelters and rescue groups in your area; talk to your neighbors.
  • Place ads online through social media and other websites: lost dog or cat pages on Facebook, NextDoor, Craigslist, Pawboost, FidoFinder.

Everett Animal Services provides found reports for public viewing only. EAS is not liable for information contained herein or for disposition of animals that are not claimed by their owners in person within 72 hours. EAS staff will make every attempt to contact owners of animals wearing traceable identification.

Found reports are kept on file for approximately four (4) weeks and are not returned to the reporting party. EAS is not responsible for any photographs or other items attached to the report. Thank you for your effort to help an animal in need.
